The War of Art | Steven Pressfield

Despite the title, this isn’t a book just for traditional artists. Pressfield is also writing for entrepreneurs, people who long to switch careers and even people who want to start living more healthfully. So many people claim they are not creative and yet we are all artists and creators of our own lives. Whatever your endeavour, and especially in these…

She Means Business: Turn Your Ideas Into Reality and Become a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur | Carrie Green

I love this book and have fallen in love with Carrie Green even now stalking her on all of her social channels, the Facebook group shows how engaged her community is. She’s so open, fresh and deliciously likeable – a wonderful example of female authenticity.  She Means Business isn’t a ground breaking, tough ‘make it to the top’ entrepreneurship, no…

The 5 Second Rule – Mel Robbins

This felt very gimmicky at first. I wasn’t sure what to make of Mel’s cackling and errm-ing conversational style.  I’ve never had any problems getting up early myself so I also couldn’t relate to her alarm snooze stories (she definitely struggled with sunrise starts), but shucks yes this did end up feeling motivating, honest and has propelled me into getting…

The Magic of Thinking Big | David Schwartz

The blurb on the back of The Magic of Thinking Big and the opening chapter made me so excited about this book I was running more, fantasising about amazing career success, plotting grandiose home renovations galore and I was totally stimulated into a yes, yes, boy can I think big mindset!  Alas, after the tantalising start once diving in I…

The Power of Purpose; How to Create the Life You Always Wanted – Les Brown

Oh Les, Les, Les how you brighten my day! I started listening to this audible download with a bit of trepidation. Gospel-esque preaching, clapping audiences, auditorium presentations, this was my first deviation from traditional \'studio monologue\' audio recordings representative of the majority of my audio collection. I wasn\'t sure if I\'d be able to stomach it but I committed to…
